Geotagging is the process where one adds geographical identification to various media such as photographs, videos, websites, etc. So when you view a geotagged photograph or video, you can find out where the photo or video was shot. Geotagging generally involves tagging the media file with the latitude and longitude coordinates but it can also include altitude, bearing, distance and place names.

Instagram , one of the most popular photo network, also comes with the option to geotag your pictures. You can tag your pictures with the location or the name of the place so that your followers could know where you took the picture. Instagram uses your phone’s GPS to track your location. Geotagging is a great help when you want to are searching for different pictures of the same location. A lot of location-specific information can be obtained through geotagging. So when you are looking to find all possible perspectives on a single location, geotagging will come to your aid.
